Thursday 3 October, 2019
Rūnanga Hauora Māori and BOPDHB launch tāngata whenua determined health strategy

On Wednesday 9 October at Manuka Tūtahi Marae in Whakatāne, the Māori Health Rūnanga of the Bay of Plenty District Health Board will launch Te Toi Ahorangi 2030 Toi Ora Strategy. Te Toi Ahorangi affirms the Bay of Plenty District Health Board’s Te Tiriti o Waitangi partnership with the 18 iwi in the Bay of Plenty and aims to transform the health system for Māori so as to realise their collective aspirations for Toi Ora.

The Māori Health Rūnanga is made up of of 17 iwi governance representatives. Toi Ora is a local vision, determined by the eighteen iwi in 2007. This vision directly aligns with He Korowai Oranga, the Government’s national Māori Health Strategy and its vision of Pae Ora - healthy, Māori futures.

Pouroto Ngaropo, Chairperson of the Māori Health Rūnanga, noted, “We stand on the foundation of all of those iwi leaders who have gone before us and their important work, from Ngā Pou Mana o Io to He Pou Oranga Tāngata Whenua, now realised in Te Toi Ahorangi.”

Te Toi Ahorangi will allow the Bay of Plenty District Health Board to demonstrate an authentic Te Tiriti o Waitangi partnership that values and invests in tāngata whenua aspirations to realise Toi Ora. Toi Ora, the vision of Te Toi Ahorangi, includes five interconnected elements: Mauri Ora (flourishing individuals), Whānau Ora (flourishing families), Wai Ora (flourishing environments), Iwi Ora (flourishing iwi) and Hapū Ora (flourishing hapū).

A ten year strategy, Te Toi Ahorangi ensures that iwi and the Bay of Plenty District Health Board are partnering for outcomes across sectors and ensuring that tāngata whenua determinants of wellbeing are addressed and invested in here in the Bay of Plenty.

Sally Webb, Chairperson of the Bay of Plenty District Health Board, commented, “We must uphold Te Tiriti o Waitangi and He Pou Oranga here in Te Moana a Toi so that tāngata whenua may once again flourish.”

Te Toi Ahorangi looks beyond the enduring inequities in Māori health to supporting the aspirations of whānau, hapū and iwi across the Bay of Plenty.

The launch will begin with a 10am pōwhiri at Manuka Tūtahi Marae. For more information on the launch and Te Toi Ahorangi 2030 Toi Ora Strategy, please contact Rochelle Price at

Copies of Te Toi Ahorangi will be available on October 10.
